(MAY 13) As unbelievable as it
even sounds to me, WBAN is celebrating this month 16 years on
Little did I know that when I began my journey of covering the
sport that WBAN would become one of the major forces in the
In May of 1998, I went live on the net to simply straighten out
the crazy history that was not documented correctly. I
wanted the world to know that there were women boxers much
earlier than what we were reading about the sport on the net
with the current boxers in the late 1990's.
What was the shocker though is that the current boxers began
contacting me and telling me the problems of what was going on
while they were boxing. I went from being a
historian of the sport to an advocate of the sport for many of
the female boxers, both amateur and pros who shared with
me the problems in the sport.
What was strange to me, is that many of the problems that
they were facing in the late 1990's were some of the same
problems, I faced in the late 1970s.
I want to personally thank all of you for your continued support
of WBAN. I am thankful for all the many people I
have had the opportunity to meet in the sport.
